01 Dec 2020

The Centre is preparing to revive the second airport project at Sriperumbudur, with the Commerce and Industry Ministry including it in a list of projects under the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) to attract global investors. The project, estimated to cost Rs.150 bn, is expected to be launched in March 2021 and end in April 2023. The NIP website listing shows it is at the "idea stage" and that the required land has been fully acquired. The size of land is estimated to be around 4,500-acre. The plan also mentions about the development of an Aero City for aviation infrastructure and training. The idea of including the project in the NIP is to look for global investors.
